When Leslie & Matthew first booked the new JW Marriott for their wedding & reception venue, they had to wear hard hats during their site visits as the construction continued. The JW was more than ready for their wedding day, however, and what a day it was. Following preparations with help from planner Leslie Jones (who referred this wedding to us) and a sweet first meeting, they took lots of family pictures with Nate & Tiffany of Nathaniel Edmunds Photography before heading into the ketubah signing.
After a beautiful ceremony under a stunning chuppah and a cocktail hour overlooking Victory Field, everyone made their way into the enormous Grand Ballroom as Tim Kelley’s gorgeous decor and Endless Summer’s music welcomed them. My favorite moments of the evening were when Leslie’s father surprised her with a “Glee”-style mash-up created especially for their dance, and when Matthew fulfilled a promise to his cancer-surviving grandmother that they would one day dance together at his wedding.
